This painting came from a black and white sketch I did in my sketchbook when in Central Oregon. The trees are old, in desert like conditions and they keep on surviving. They are a testament to strength and fortitude. This is one of the many reasons I like trees. They often parallel human life.

Painted on the sides so that no frame is required. It is signed bottom left hand corner.
There are a cluster of trees in an area that we frequently walk our dog. A lot of the trees
look like well dressed women. One looks like she has a gorgeous evening gown on. This
one caught my attention a few weeks ago so I thought I would give it a whirl.
So to speak.

It's amazing what a few strokes of paint will do. I posted the bottom painting a few weeks ago. I kept looking at it thinking there was something missing so last night I loaded the palette knife with more paint and with a few strokes I made a whole lot of difference.
Would you agree? The first painting is below.

More playing with my water mixable oil. I love this time of the year for color. Just came back from taking photos with the sun shining brightly on warm rich colorful trees. Lots to work from. This painting is from a photo I took a couple of years ago. It was actually a parking lot. Great place to stop without disturbing traffic.
We don't have the rich hillsides like they do back east but there are many individual trees and sometimes line of trees. I am happy for that.
We are so blessed.
Have a great day.
